Brynn Kelly, 1, of Joliet will be a special honoree at this year’s ATI Foundation's Metal Walk & Fun Run.

JOLIET – The ATI Foundation’s Metal Walk & Fun Run to raise funds for local children with physical impairments is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 21 at Silver Cross Field, 1 Mayor Art Schultz Dr., Joliet.

The day will start and finish at home plate on the Joliet Slammers field; food, entertainment, kid’s activities and prizes presentations to local foundation beneficiaries will follow.

This year’s Joliet beneficiary, Brynn Kelly, age 1, of Joliet, will be a special honoree at this year’s event. Brynn was born with enterocolitis syndrome, which doesn’t allow her body to break down certain proteins in her diet. This rare syndrome – only 100 kids in the United States – has left Brynn severely malnourished and has caused several physical and developmental delays.

In addition to Brynn, several other local children will be honored and presented with grants at the event. Their stories can be found at

Beneficiaries include:

Manny Bueno, age 2, of Romeoville – cerebral palsy

Aaron Escamilla, age 2, of Lockport – global delays, hypotonia, feeding disorder

Ready Set Ride Therapeutic Riding Center, Plainfield

Kelly Cunningham, age 18, of Ashkum – complex regional pain syndrome

Daisy Sanchez, age 9, of Chicago – limb girdle muscular dystrophy

Register for the Metal Walk & Fun Run at www.ATI Donation is $30 for early registration through June 15 and $35 thereafter. Kids 12 and under are free.

Event day registration starts at 8:30 a.m.

The event begins at 10 a.m.

Proceeds from the Metal Walk & Fun Run benefit the ATI Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping children with physical impairments in need of medical and financial resources.

Hinsdale Orthopaedics is presenting the event; Joliet Slammers and ATI Physical Therapy is sponsoring it.
